R.I.P. Duke Snider

The 'Duke Of Flatbush' passed away this weekend. Snider was a big part of Baseball's Golden Age, patrolling center field for the Brooklyn Dodgers.

Unflattering, yes. Tasteless, maybe.

Here's another major leaguer who had an unfortunate nickname. Don't worry, this guy's loooooooong since dead.
